Honduras in limbo as votes for president are counted

Wednesday, November 29, 2017

Supporters of the incumbent and the opposition candidate in Honduras' presidential poll have been celebrating after both claimed victory.

The electoral tribunal released partial results on Monday which gave the opposition candidate, Salvador Nasralla, a five-percentage-point lead over President Juan Orlando Hernández.

But Hernández says he is convinced once the votes from rural areas come in, he will move ahead of Nasralla. Final results are expected by Thursday.
